Got science? Got math?

Do you, as a principal, promote science and math?

Have you helped your school embrace STEM, or have you created a special program for staff development or students, or for the community?

Apply today for the tenth annual Science and Mathematics Principal of the Year award.

This partnership between the Minnesota Elementary School Principals' Association and the Science Museum of Minnesota honors the key role elementary and middle level principals play in developing a culture that encourages and celebrates math and science literacy. The award recognizes the vital importance of fostering lifelong science literacy and encouraging student interest in math and science.

    Applications for 2014 Science and Mathematics Principal of the Year are due Saturday, Dec. 2, 2013. 

  • Who should apply? Here are the qualifications.

    In reviewing applications, the award committee will look for such indicators as the following:
